Pajamas Boy is Part of the new Sponging Generation

THE GREATEST GENERATION, A GENERATION BORN FROM THE GREAT DEPRESSION AND DESTINED TO LEAD US THROUGH WORLD WAR II IS DYING OUT AS FATHER TIME TAKES ITS TOLL ON THEIR SHRINKING NUMBERS.  TODAY WE HAVE A NEW GENERATION IN AMERICA, BORN AND NURTURED IN THE PROSPERITY THAT FOLLOWED THAT GREAT WAR.  THESE4 ARE THE CHILDREN AND GRAND CHILDREN OF THE GREATEST GENERATION.  SADLY THIS NEW GENERATION, THE PAJAMAS BOYS AND GIRLS OF TODAY ARE FAR TOO USE TO MODERN DAY LUXURIES AND HAVE LEARNED LITTLE ABOUT SELF-RELIANCE, BUT STILL CLING TO THEIR PARENTS POCKETBOOKS.  THEY HAVE BECOME THE "SPONGING GENERATION",  A GENERATION THAT FEELS THE WORLD OWES THEM SOMETHING AND BELIEVE ITS THE GOVERNMENT'S OBLIGATION TO PROVIDE THEM WITH THE NECESSITIES OF EVERYDAY LIFE.  IF MAMMA AND DADDY, FOR SOME REASON, CANNOT OR WILL NOT PROVIDE THEM WITH THEIR CELL PHONES, A FRIVOLOUS LIBERAL ARTS EDUCATION, FREE HEALTH INSURANCE, AND A ROOF OVER THEIR LAZY HEADS; THEN THEY LOOK TO WASHINGTON TO PROVIDE THEIR NEEDS.  JUST THE WAY IT IS IN TODAYS AMERICA.  CARTOON BY  MICHAEL RAMIREZ
